We've just returned from a two night break at the Poplars.
All I can say is 'Wow!' Everything about staying at the Poplars is great!
We arrived and were met by the charming Maggie who showed us to our room. The house is beautiful and our room was huge, very clean, airy and decorated by someone with a very good eye.
A very nice touch is the home-baking left in a little tin on a table (we had cupcakes the first day, and cherry cake the second. Both were superb).
The breakfasts that Maggie serves are as big as you want. She is very accommodating (for example, porridge wasn't on the menu but she made it for us without any hesitation). Make sure you have a good appetite because the ingredients are so good (some of the best sausages I've had) and Maggie is such a good cook that you find yourself eating like a Trojan!
We very much enjoyed the fifteen minute walks along the river to the centre of Barnstaple too.
I can only say we will be returning which is the highest praise I can give.
